Well, as someone who stood against a crowd, 2 times now, while being shouted at, had things thrown at them and the whole plethora of fear tactics. I feel confident I would stand there again to protect speach. It sucks to take the battery of abuses of the intollerant - but I am better for it. The experience of having my fellow Americans attack me so virulently for standing up for what I believe in, tought me that the freedom of expression in this country is at serious risk.

If they make Flag burning a crime, you will see me there again, burning my flag in front of the world. Taking the violence and insults as they come.
